Once students have done the extension work on privacy and data mining, they can move on to looking at the legislation regarding privacy, the Data Protection Act. Follow the chapters on this topic on the excellent Teach-ICT website. MS Word Notes for this section are courtesy of fatmax: Personal Information & the Data Protection Act. Extension Work: Look at the first four video entries on del.icio.us/kerryturner regarding Data Protection Case Studies – where security breaches have taken place at high levels.
Post lesson. Students have become really keen on developing their own wordpress blogs, so we’re taking a minor detour from the content. Discussions have centred around creating a blog as part of their Sample Work and the uses of blogs in teaching and learning. We’ll be working on this for the next couple of lessons before coming back to the content here.
